    We frequent the Costa Cucina often and have always enjoyed our dinners and highly recommend it to others. This past experience with our meal was not what we have been accustomed. Our server and asked it the meal was good. We told him of the issues we had with the meal and he immediately returned with the Sous Chef who listened and was going to see what had happenedvwith our meal. The meal was deleted from our bill and desert was offered but we declined. So meal was a 2 and the service was a 10. We will go back as I had said we have always had delious dinners there.

    This was our first visit and we will be back. My husband and I both had the chicken parm and it was wonderful, as was the fresh bread. We were early so it wasn't crowded. We just wanted a nice quiet dinner which is what we got. Our waiter Joey although professional, was also fun. He really helped make our experience a good one. We definitely would recommend this restaurant and have done so to people we met while in Biloxi. Thank you, Jackie Scott

    Skylar was a great waiter. Keep me informed of the timeliness of the arrival of the food. Antipasto and salad were served in order and very delicious. I really enjoyed the lasagna bolagnese and my guest for dinner said that he liked his shrimp scampi with pasta dish. Overall, I would return to this restaurant in the future.

    I introduced friends, two couples, to Costa Cucina this time; and they were extremely pleased with the atmosphere, the wait staff, the food, and the reasonable prices. This is the fourth time I've taken friends, and not one has ever been disappointed. Our main favorites are eggplant parmesan (and they have added pasta to this dish in the last month), veal parmesan, chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meat balls, and a special of flounder with a light menuire sauce and lump crab meat served with polenta, and the salad and balsamic vinegarette.

    Service was great! The bread and olive oil mix was wonderful! We enjoyed how the salad was served family style. The prices are reasonable for a casino establishment. The food was great! My husband ordered the special, which was a flounder with crab meat on top. I ordered the Veal. The special was wonderful! The lava cake was amazing! I would recommend this place to others.

    Great appetizers. Great bread. Appetizers were awful. They had an overpowering lemon juice flavor that seemed like it was attempting to mask the fishy taste from the seafood.

    Food was just adequate. Server was a bit confused on food delivery and Scampi was swimming in too-buttery sauce, Caesar salad was way over-dressed, and prawns on pasta had way too much cheese. Not a memorable meal

    2 in our party ordered steaks with salad and 2 ordered pizza with caesar salad. The steaks came as well as the accompanying salads ling before the pizza...then the caesar salad came last. The restaurant was not busy, no idea why our food came so far apart. It was very good b7t the meals were delivered too far apart.

    I chose Costa Cucina Italian because I wanted to treat a friend for her birthday. In fact, I'd like to get all of my friends hooked on the restaurant. It's a great place to go for a special occasion, a night out, time to chat privately, and a chance to have fun. No one that I've been with has been disappointed in the food. My friend was surprised, however, that the eggplant parmesan does not come with pasta; and a side of pasta is a little expensive. Overall, it's my favorite special place to go, and the prices are competitive.

    Once again I pushed their chefs to see if they would make my steak as I requested and as they did before with a medium cooked 10 oz steak done just right they masterfully cooked this steak medium rare in a no less professional manner. I tried their appetizer sampler and wow it could have been my main meal! I had a nice glass of Riesling and the house salad then on to the steak Putanesca with grilled veggies that were done just right. These items are my all-time favorites here at Costa Cucina. My server Kim was her usual outstanding and purely professional self.

    Kim was my server and she did her very best to make my visit the best ever. Bisteca Putanesca with the sauce on the side as Kim suggested was spot on. I was able to put as much of the sauce on my steak as I wanted and the steak was not overpowered by it. I would have liked the veg medley steamed, but sauteed was ok. House salad and a glass of Riesling were the finishing touches.

    We were there for a special "date night". Due to my job, I miss most birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. I had flowers delivered and the staff gave us a quiet, isolated table for two. Natasha (hostess) and Brandon(waiter) were awesome and helped to make the evening a very special night for my wife of 31 years and myself. The service was first rate and the food was absolutely delicious.

    Our only issue is we were sitting so close to a large table of young girls that we could rub elbows with them. We could barely talk without them listening in and we couldn't enjoy our meal because all hearing loud and clear there conversation and being way to close to them. Put a damper on a 11 yr anniversary dinner.
